I am an 18 year old, healthy and in a relationship. My periods always run on a 35 day cycle from the first day of one to the first day of the next. I'm never more than 1 day early or late, but yesterday I noticed dome light brown spotting 12 days before my next period is due. The spotting stopped after a couple of hours but has continued again today, slightly heavier and slightly redder but still not like my normally heavy periods. I didn't have my usual 'warning cramps' a week before it started, I'm really bloated and tired, I'm getting random waves of nausea, and I'm having very mild cramps today. I don't know if this is just due to stress of over working and little sleep or if I should be buying a pregnancy test, any advice?

Hello there! Well I am assuming you aren't on birth control or you wouldn't be asking right? It sounds like it could have been maybe ovulation spotting? It happens to all of us from time to time you just get break thru spotting. I would wait the full 35 days and if no period than test. Good Luck!

I'm assuming you had a period 23 days ago, and you aren't late yet? Technically, you can ovulate as early as 10 days into your cycle. You might have a freak ovulation that early. Not too likely, but it can happen. I actually spot when my body tries and fails to ovulate. So it could be ovulation, it could be implantation spotting, or it could be that you haven't ovulated yet. Only time will tell. I agree to just wait till you're late to worry about anything.
